take a trip on a rocket ship

with maizy under the watchful eye of the emergency veterinarian, my sister, brother-in-law and i headed north to philadelphia to catch our second and final tori amos concert of the tour.

the tower theater marquee

it was an equally magic, though distinctly different, concert experience.  the hands-down — did i really hear that? — shining moment of the night came with the debut of flying dutchman, a rarity that has only made five live appearances since 2001.  it was also one of the many “sky” references that flooded her set:

give
bouncing off clouds
cornflake girl
starling
hotel
black dove (january)
welcome to england
northern lad
cars and guitars
your cloud

flying dutchman (solo) (!)
cloud on my tongue (solo)

china
carbon
police me
past the mission
precious things
strong black vine

caught a lite sneeze (encore)
big wheel (encore)

tori rocked it out of the park, as usual, and i left the tower theater a happy girl.

i can’t wait to do it again.
